easyJet Collaborates with RTX to Enhance Operations

Collins Aerospace, an RTX business, is working with easyJet to activate GlobalConnectSM connected aircraft services on more than 330 Airbus aircraft in its fleet. easyJet will become the largest A320 operator in the world to deploy GlobalConnect. This new capability enhances safety oversight, pilot training and operational efficiencies.

The Collins GlobalConnect solution enables the already-installed Flight Operations and Maintenance Exchanger system (FOMAX), jointly developed with Airbus, to provide easyJet valuable insights into its fleet operations, enabling proactive decision-making and more efficient airline operations.

The adoption of this data exchange and analytics capability also brings the potential to simplify the avionics architecture, leading to further fuel efficiency gains through the gradual removal of quick access recorders. The airline projects that cutting this additional weight could save up to 500 tonnes of carbon per year when rolled out fleet-wide.

"We are constantly seeking innovative solutions that enable our aircraft to be more connected," said Jane Ashton, director of Sustainability, easyJet. "Collins' GlobalConnect is one of the many initiatives we will use to drive operational efficiencies across our fleet and to help reduce our emissions."

"The FOMAX system in conjunction with GlobalConnect is designed to empower airlines with comprehensive data-driven insights, allowing them to enhance their operations and passenger experience," said Jen Schopfer, president of Connected Aviation Solutions, Collins Aerospace.

GlobalConnect services across easyJet's fleet will be progressively activated in the coming months, starting before year-end 2023. This marks a significant milestone in easyJet's digital transformation journey and underscores the airline's dedication to embracing cutting-edge technologies that benefit its passengers and the environment.
